While Dr. Pryor recommends addressing problems with spacing, crooked teeth, or a misaligned jaw as early as possible, it is now more popular than ever for adults to have orthodontic procedures. Mild to moderate dental crowding can often be treated with Invisalign®, which employs 3D computer imagery to create a series of clear plastic aligners that will adjust the spaces between your teeth.
Dr. Pryor is determined to improve the smiles of his patients, both young and old alike.
